Medicare physician payments are scheduled to be slashed nearly 30 percent January 1, 2012. Results from an AMA poll released last week shows an overwhelming number of Americans, 94 percent, believe a 30 percent cut would be a serious problem for seniors.
The NCMS has been urging members of the North Carolina Congressional Delegation to repeal the SGR and develop a new method of determining Medicare reimbursements to physicians that more accurately reflects the actual cost of delivery of care.
